. [ gunfire ] a hail of bullets rang out as the last suspect, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev held off police in a watertown, massachusetts neighborhood in a backyard last night. we learned from university of massachusetts dartmouth officials, he was on campus every day until thursday, attending classes, parties in dorms during that period. now he is in custody in a boston hospital under heavy guard. we are also remembering four people who were killed, three at the marathon monday and the m.i.t. officer killed during a shootout with the two suspects. with the hunt over for the suspects, we are focusing on the full puzzle on cnn. how is it two brothers described by many as normal are suspected of horrific terrorist bombings. want to head to cnn's susan candiotti at the center of it all in watertown, massachusetts. so what has the watertown police chief been saying about the investigation and last night's take down, susan? >> reporter: hi, don. we are getting more details from the chief about what happened and just to show you that things are still happening out here, we can show you still have
in last monday's attacks. >> we now know the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, has been charged while he lays badly wounded in his hospital bed here in boston. one of the charges using a weapon of mass destruction. all this as bostonians are back at work today, trying to find some semblance of normality after a deadly bombing, a manhunt, car chases, shootout, city wide lockdown, four innocent people have been killed. one of those being remembered today is krystle campbell. hundreds turned out today for the funeral of the 29-year-old restaurant manager. meanwhile, boston university has announced a memorial scholarship to honor the life of one of its students, lingi lu. >> police are look at this jihad video here, parts of the elder brother's youtube collection, but the focus is on the younger brother, dzhokhar tsarnaev, seen here wrestling with a friend. he was the captain of his senior year high school wrestling team. today, though, a much different situation for him. he's handcuffed as we speak to a hospital bed, and as jake mentioned, we have just learned the charges here have now b
are under way. the justice department says no federal charges will be filed today against dzhokhar tsarnaev in the boston attacks. when the charges are filed a justice department official says tsarnaev could be charged with both federal terrorism charges and state murder charges. tsarnaev is still listed in serious but stable condition and is unable to speak. we continue to learn more about tsarnaev's brother, tamerlan, who died in friday's shootout. last year, he created a youtube channel with links to videos by chechnyan radicals like this one seen here. then earlier today here in boston, worshippers at new england's largest catholic church gathered to remember those killed at the boston marathon and its violent aftermath. four large photos of the victims were prominently displayed behind four lit candles. at last check, 54 of the bombing victims are still in the hospital. let's get the very latest on the bombing investigation now. we have new details about the materials used to build those bombs and some fresh information about the tsarnaev family that is very high interest, very high in
right now in this investigation. we have learned a short time ago that the suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, now will not face criminal charges until tomorrow. even though massachusetts doesn't have the death penalty, he should face the death penalty under federal law. >> this is just kind of case that it should be applied to. in fact, the only other time it has been used since '94 is on timothy mcbay. given the facts i have seen, it would be appropriate to use the death penalty in this case and i would hope they would apply it in federal court. >> reporter: there is growing evidence today that his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev had become incredibly radical. this video of a radical jihadist was posted and then removed from his personal youtube channel. he created it in august shortly after an extended visit to russia. there are increasing questions about how the fbi handled its investigation of tamerlan tsarnaev. they did not follow up after that trip to russia last year. the very latest on the investigation from our crime and justice correspondent, mr. joe johns. joe joins us from washington.
strong case against him. >> most of the questions that the investigators are now asking dzhokhar tsarnaev relate to public security. are there more devices, things like that. with so much attention on the bombers, we do want to remember the victims of this tragedy. a funeral is being held this hour for krystle campbell. she went to the marathon almost every single year. she had been called hard working. her grandmother says she was always smiling, a big help always to her when she recovered from medical procedures. this is where campbell's casket was carried out moments ago. cameras were asked not to be inside. she died a few weeks shy of her 30th birthday. one of the victim of the atta-- wounded victims was a dancer. she joins me after this. i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to
carney has now let us know that this bombing suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev is not -- i repeat, is not going to be treated as an enemy combatant. there have been a lot of questions about just what kind of prosecution this young man is going to be facing whether it would be in civilian justice or perhaps would he be one of those considered for prosecution in a military tribunal, perhaps even at guantanamo bay, but there you have it straight from the white house he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. the court and justice itself for boston and for the nation may well depend on exactly what those interactions are right now going on between dzhokhar tsarnaev and the high value detainee interrogation group. again, that's a very frightening sounding group, but the high value detainee interrogation group is comprised of a number of officials of the cia, the fbi and others. those very well may be the people who are at that hospital bedside periodically asking whatever questions they can get out of this suspect. i want to get into some of that right now with three of the smartest in the busine
expect, the younger brother, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. he's still being hospitalized. he's listed in steer eerious bu stable condition. an official says he has injuries to his throat and is unable to talk. he could be charged by federal prosecutors today right at his hospital bedside. wolf? >> that would be a pretty dramatic moment if in fact a judge or magistrate shows up at the beth israel deaconess medical center, goes to the bedside of this 19-year-old suspect and formally noichz him of what's going on as far as federal charges are concerned. >> it would indeed. >>> let's take a look at what else we know about the process, the justice department coming up with some formal charges. our crime and justice correspondent joe johns is monitoring this part of the story in washington for us. what are officials telling you, joe, what can we anticipate? >> well, first, on that point were you just making, the rules say that when a person's charged with a federal crime, they need to be informed as soon as practicable but it is not clear whether that would mean this suspect would have to b
is dzhokhar tsarnaev, could be charged by federal prosecutors as recaearl today at his hospital bed. he's at beth israel deaconess center. he's in serious condition. a federal official says he has injuries to his throat and is unable to speak. we'll have a live report from the hospital in just a few minutes. our elizabeth cohen is standing by. first, we want to catch you up on some of the other developments, up to date on the charges that the suspected bomber may actually face, and show you some new riveting images of that intense manhunt that led to his capture. we're watching all of this unfold. for that, let's go to cnn's joe johns, our crime and justice correspondent. he's working his sources in washington. joe, what are officials telling you about the proceeding that could happen today in the coming hours by the suspect's bedside? this is highly extraordinary. >> that's true, wolf. our sources have told us it's possible, possible we could see charges today. but there's no guarantee. we have heard as recently as yesterday that authorities were contemplating a terrorism charge, most
, dzhokhar tsarnaev. a naturalized u.s. citizen, 19 years old, considered extremely dangerous. the hunt is focused, but not confined to a series of communities west of boston proper, including cambridge and watertown. 21 hours since the photo was first released, dzhokhar named on the loose. his older brother, his alleged co-conspirator in the bombing at the marathon died early this morning in a clash with police from which the younger brother escaped. according to one law enforcement source, actually driving over his brother's body. here is the brother's uncle in an emotional plea delivered late this morning. >> i say dzhokhar, if you're alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness. and the victims, from the injured and from those who left, ask for forgiveness from these people. >> we already obviously are learning a lot about these two suspects. we know that dzhokhar who is 19 years old, first came to the united states in 2002, he was 8 years old. his family, he came here on a tourist visa. we know with his mother and his -- at least with his mother. let's go back to the aunt now sp
. >> one lawmaker strongly against charging dzhokhar tsarnaev as an enemy combatant. adam schiff, a boston area. thank you for joining us. i'm sure your heart is going out to your native city here. so congressman, take us through this. should he be tried as an enemy of the united states, an enemy combatant? can he be prosecuted in that manner? >> well, i don't think we have really seen any evidence yet that would support treating him as an enemy combatant. this is somebody who is a u.s. citizen, arrested on u.s. soil for acts committed on u.s. soil. really far appeal from the paradigm of an enemy combatant, captured on an enemy battlefield. we don't have any evidence he's part of an al qaeda cell or been foreign directioned here. it's possible that could materialize but i think it is very hasty tore calling for his treatment as an enemy combatant. moreover, we haven't had much success in trying enemy combatants in our military commissions. criminal courts have been much more successful in the expeditious prosecution of terrorists. so this rush to want to proclaim him an enemy combatant and
the road where the two boston marathon suspects, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev were engaging in this gunfight with police. we'll scroll through a couple of these pictures. keep your eyes here on the screen. the photos here show the brothers huddling behind a stolen suv at times as we reported through the hours last week, shooting at police, before this older brother tamerlan charges, runs towards these officers here, then he's seen lying in the street. the suv driven by his younger brother who we know is in fair condition at this hour at a hospital here in boston, he's in the car, accelerates toward his older brother, on the ground. >> what is the context for that? do they believe he was trying to escape, do they believe he was trying to maybe separate his brother from the officers or is there anything on this? >> i think his brother was on the ground, his brother was enga engaging, strapped with explosives and the younger brother from everything i've gleaned wants to get out of there. >> maybe because of the explosives. what does he wind up doing? >> ultimately gets out of t
to is they are taking the claims that dzhokhar tsarnaev has made and taking a look at whether the two brothers may have learned their expertise online. one of the things they are looking at is an online publication called inspire. this is a publication essentially, online site, sponsored by al qaeda in the arabian peninsula essentially al qaeda in yemen. amongst the extremist jihady move. well known, in existence for many years. they published some time back a recipe for making a pressure cooker bomb in an article that they basically entitled "how to make a bomb in your mother's kitchen" the belief is there may be similarities between this online recipe and what was used in boston. investigators are looking at this very closely. chris? >> barbara, thank you very much. another piece in the puzzle. as people understand this information, and you hear it, it's important to tell everybody it's not about building this up or dramatizing, it's about understanding exactly how this could have happened and why. barbara, thank you very much. we'll be back to you. >>> not far from here in the boston suburb of massa
